A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

The purpose of our Campus IPM program is to manage pest and horticultural problems by eradication or suppression using the safest products available. “Safety”, meaning the least harmful to people and the environment, while maintaining a beautiful healthy campus. Our goal is to accomplish the above purpose by using organic and non-chemical solutions whenever possible. When using chemicals, to use the best choice, and the safest product available. Also limiting chemical fertilizers, replaced by organic options. There is also a class that specifically teaches PRINCIPLES OF INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT on campus (PSSC 441).
